Debian DLA-240-1 : libapache-mod-jk security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 84062
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


An information disclosure flaw due to incorrect JkMount/JkUnmount directives processing was found in the Apache 2 module mod_jk to forward requests from the Apache web server to Tomcat. A JkUnmount rule for a subtree of a previous JkMount rule could be ignored. This could allow a remote attacker to potentially access a private artifact in a tree that would otherwise not be accessible to them.

For the squeeze distribution, this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.2.30-1squeeze2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-jk packages.

This update has been prepared by Markus Koschany.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
